Blue Hill Escape is a 2300 ha nature reserve on the border of the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area and the Klein Karoo. The reserve is located on private land and is a contract nature reserve created under the CapeNature stewardship program[1]. The nearest town is Uniondale, Western Cape, South Africa. The reserve is located in the Kouga mountains, which are part of the Cape Fold Mountains, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site [2]. The vegetation is mostly mountain fynbos (Proteas and Ericas) - part of the Cape Floral Kingdom. This is not a Big 5 reserve, but a variety of wildlife including klipspringer and leopard[3] occur. The reserve offers a variety of accommodation options and activities are mostly focused around hiking, conservation and research [4]. It is a base for Fynbos Endemic Birds Survey, a research program aimed at determining the ecological and conservation status of the six species of bird found only in the Fynbos.[5]
